Kirk Dillman Receives Jim Robie Professionalism and Civility Award
LACBA congratulates Kirk Dillman, a principal in the Los Angeles office of McKool Smith Hennigan, who was selected as the recipient of the 2018 Jim Robie Professionalism and Civility Award. The Award is given annually by LACBA’s Litigation Section to a Los Angeles trial lawyer whose career demonstrates the same qualities of professionalism, civility, service, enthusiasm, and collegiality as the Section’s former chair, Jim Robie. Not only was Mr. Robie an accomplished trial lawyer, he was a consummate professional who embraced civility and service to the bar and the civil justice system.
Mr. Dillman, who specializes in complex commercial litigation and trial practice, primarily in the areas of finance, securities, energy, real estate, trade secrets, partnership, and healthcare fraud, said “It is truly humbling to receive an award that honors the amazing life and spirit of Jim Robie.”
